Would I Lie To You
Nico Santos Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Shadow in the dark, shadow in the dark
I know what you've been through
Trouble in your heart, trouble in your heart
Where no one's ever been to

I know you've been hurt before
Don't want you to hurt no more
Let me get to you

Every time you're down, lying on the ground
Let me lie with you
Let me be around, let me be around
We all got our issues

I know you've been hurt before
Don't want you to hurt no more
Just remember

When the world is crashing down
Then I'll be here
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

And when I say I'll be around
To dry your tears
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

When the world is crashing down
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you? Oh
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you? Oh
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

Do you wanna go, do you wanna go
Somewhere only we know?
Never gonna play you, promised you I won't
Love ain't no casino

'Cause the day we open up
Is the day we learn to love
Let me get to you

Sun down, but the stars come out
Come around, let me love you now
I want you to remember

When the world is crashing down
Then I'll be here
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

And when I say I'll be around
To dry your tears
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

When the world is crashing down
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you? Oh
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you? Oh
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

When life is too hard on you
You're lost in the dark
I know there's a part of you
That's breaking apart

When life is too hard on you
You know what you've got
I'm not giving you up
I'm not giving you up

When the world is crashing down
Then I'll be here
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

And when I say I'll be around
To dry your tears
Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

When the world is crashing down
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you? Oh
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you? Oh
Would I lie, would I lie to you?
Would I lie, would I lie to you?




Tell me, would I lie to you?
Tell me, would I lie?

I'm from South Africa, visiting Germany, and kept hearing this song on the radio thinking it's a Billboard Top 100 artist but then I search for it and realize it is from an artist who is CRIMINALLY UNDERRATED. I'm an instant fan! This song is a HIT 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

Keep up the amazing work, Nico 👏👏👏 you are a global superstar in the making 💯
Much love from South Africa
